Abstract: E31.00005 : Toward RF to Optical Quantum Transduction using Brillouin Scattering*
8:48 AM–9:00 AM
Robert J Schoelkopf
We demonstrate two important use cases: First, we measure the cavity-enhanced transduction efficiency of microwave to optical photons in x-cut Quartz, a piezoelectric material; and second, we further refine the bounds on anomalous piezoelectricity in Silicon, a centrosymmetric material. Future applications of our work are directly relevant in microwave to optical transduction for the construction of quantum networks and the understanding of phonon properties in substrates to utilize in superconducting qubits system.
